A candy company founded by a nutritional counselor? It sounds almost too good to be true, but HunnyBon is the real deal, with over 30 different candies and chocolates. They are all organic, all-GMO, and all vegan, and we are all in. From organic raw chocolate coconut peppermint patties to organic gummy bears to organic chocolate covered pretzels, Hunnybon's selection has something to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth. We're not going to call these treats totally guilt-free, but thanks to the stringent standards of this "conscious confectionary," they are just about as virtuous as candy can be!
HunnyBon’s founder and CEO (and resident sweet tooth) Kimberly Silver set up an approval system so you won’t find any unpleasant ingredient surprises. All of the items in their sweet shop are free from GMOs, refined sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, dairy and animal products, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, and additives, preservatives, pesticides, and transfats. Since most candies are completely comprised of those undesirables, you are probably wondering what’s left: organic, vegan, sustainably produced, and minimally processed goodies.
HunnyBon’s yummies rely on less processed sweeteners (including organic cane, maple syrup, stevia), fruit and vegetable extracts, superfoods like goji berries and chia seeds, and small-batch, single origin, fairly traded chocolate. And we’re kind of obsessed with the user-friendly way their site is designed, with details about all of the candy brands and extremely convenient collections for people with diet and lifestyle restrictions/choices including gluten-free, cane sugar-free, and nut-free. HunnyBon’s handy FAQ page lays out all the reasons why these thoughtful ingredients are better for your body and mind as well as for the health of the planet.
When you need your sweet fix NOW or a thoughtful gift fast, HunnyBon offers on-demand hand delivery in parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn via their Bicycle Street Team with same day options. The company also ships to all 50 states and sneaks in a free sample. Even HunnyBon’s packaging policy is a refreshing alternative, with BPA-free plastic bags for their loose candies, 100% recycled cardboard boxes for shipping, and reusable HunnyBon tote gift bags for the hand deliveries.
Silver spent seven years working in the NYC restaurant and food industry so she knows what tastes awesome and that her conscious consumers want candies and chocolates that bring less guilt and more good. HunnyBon fills that delicious candy niche. Life’s too short to give up sweet treats entirely, and with HunnyBon’s selection, you can indulge, snack, gift, and celebrate!
